Funding Innovative Research

Funding innovative research

1 in 3 of us will be diagnosed with cancer in our lifetime.

At NCCS, we aim to Make More Survivors. We want to eradicate cancer so that the next generation can live without the fear of a cancer diagnosis.

Over the past 40 years, survival rates for cancer patients in Singapore have tripled for men and have doubled for women. This is thanks to the great progress cancer research has made.

World-leading scientists, right here at NCCS, are revolutionising cancer treatment. They are doing pioneering, innovative research to find the breakthroughs that will change how we understand, diagnose, treat and ultimately cure cancer.

Your gift can help us to Make More Survivors

NCC Research Fund

The NCC Research Fund invests in this vital research. Our pioneering research focuses on Asian-specific cancers: those that have a greater impact on local people. These include breast, colorectal, liver, lung, nasopharyngeal and many more cancers. Our research aims to save the lives of those within our community, helping to prevent, better diagnose, and treat all cancers that affect the people of Singapore.

Our comprehensive cancer research programme covers 17 areas of cancer investigation including clinical trials, cancer genetics, palliative care and proton therapy to name a few.

The NCC Research Fund funds specialized research with three key objectives:

  • We provide seed funding to kick-start exciting new areas of research, ensuring that ground-breaking work can get off the ground. Our funding helps scientists to establish a track record, which can help them to secure further funding from the government.
  • We give bridge funding to help close the gap between government grant cycles so that researchers can carry on their vital work throughout the year.
  • We help by providing advancement funding for tools, equipment and infrastructure, ensuring that researchers have everything they need to do their life-changing work.

In the last 10 years, our research investment has totalled approximately $330 million. Last year, we ran over 185 clinical trials, leading the way for the nation. And had over 169 research papers published. Our research saves lives.

But, it would not be possible without the help of our kind donors. People like you. You can help save lives. Donate today to help save lives.
